We are the Lead Local Flood Authority (LLFA) and manage the risk of local flooding in Hertfordshire.
As the designated authority, our role within Hertfordshire is to develop a strategy where we monitor the local flood risk in the area.
We also establish and maintain a record of structures, such as walls or embankments, likely to have a significant effect on flood risk, including their ownership and state of repair. These are identified in a Flood Risk Asset Register.
Local flood risk management strategy for Hertfordshire
We have developed a Local Flood Risk Management Strategy that focuses on identifying and handling local flood risk from surface water, groundwater and ordinary watercourses, such as streams, ditches and small rivers.
